My name is Agatha Slupek and I am a doctoral student at the University of Chicago, studying political theory and comparative politics. My primary research interests are in feminist theory, critical social theory, and political economy. I'm interested in how elements of the feminist 'second-wave' can help us to think the critique of advanced industrial societies.
I am a 2018-2019 Residential Fellow at the Center for Gender and Sexuality Studies at the University of Chicago. In 2017, I had the pleasure of developing my dissertation project in Paris as a Sciences Po Doctoral Exchange Fellow.
I completed my Master's at the University of Chicago in August 2017. My thesis titled "Beyond the Fragments: Feminism, Work, and Freedom" was awarded the Joseph Cropsey Prize for best master's thesis in political philosophy. It was supervised by Linda M.G. Zerilli and Demetra Kasimis.
Before coming to Chicago, I earned my Bachelor's degree in Philosophy and Political Theory at McGill University, in my hometown of Montréal, Canada.
